At United Dental Office, we now provide a new system to reduce your risk for future cavity and gum disease. We screen our patients to determine the level of caries risk by asking questions CRA
, using CariScreen

Upon determination of your risk level, you will be recommended to use some dental hygiene products to help reduce the risk. You can continue the regimen for 3-6 months period and be re-evaluated at your next recall visit.
